Mukuba also missed Clemson’s Week 2 contest against Charleston Southern. When healthy, he’s one of the best defensive backs in the ACC. He’s currently dealing with a lower-body injury.
Parks had made 28 consecutive starts on Clemson’s offensive line before missing the FAU game due to injury. Florida State is strong up front, so Clemson will need all the experience it can get on Saturday.
Clemson will be looking to extend its winning streak over Florida State to 8 games on Saturday. FSU’s last win over the Tigers came back in 2014.
Kickoff is set for 12 p.m. ET on Saturday afternoon. The game will be broadcast on ABC.
